Michael Fassbender Does The Worm On 'The Graham Norton Show'

Now then, he's widely tipped to be the next James Bond and if Barbara Broccoli needs some extra convincing as to why Michael Fassbender should take the role of 007, then look no further than his latest interview.

The German-born, Irish actor was appearing on the BBC's Graham Norton Show to promote his new film Alien: Covenant - a sequel to the 2012 film Prometheus, in which Fassbender also starred.

He started by telling host Norton that in Prometheus, he wanted to have his character doing a scene dancing in the 'disco deck' of the spaceship. Just have that in your mind for a moment.

I mean, let's face it, if we're going to have to leave this planet soon, then whilst we're travelling to Mars, or wherever, then we may as well do it in style.

Strangely, and god only knows why, but director Ridley Scott decided against it, which is a shame considering Fassbender says he learnt the robot dance during his 'breakdance phase' in the late 1980s.

Slightly egged on by his fellow sofa members, and the crowd, Fassbender is encouraged to show us what breakdancing is.

"I could try a flick forward dive I suppose," he told the host.

Graham Norton then, somewhat happily, undressed Michael Fassbender, unclipping his microphone and taking his suit jacket for him.

The result, as I'm sure you'll agree is spectacular, and a standing ovation ensues - well, from everyone accept Kevin Bacon (misery).

Fassbender's new film, Alien: Covenant, looks epic.

The film is set 10 years after the events of Prometheus and follows a team of terraformers who pick up a distress call. Well, doesn't that sound familiar - just like Ridley Scott's original film. The crew of Covenant find a paradise-like planet which is, of course, anything but.

Ridley Scott, has already promised us more blood in this film after Prometheus disappointed fans on that side (although, whether it's as bloody as an alien ripping out from inside someone's stomach we shall have to wait and see).
